Sharon? Hey, I'm not too far from there. He should invite me over to play some original (i.e. ripped off styles from others) compositions so I can be famous and drink too much wine.

Fats was great, but Art Tatum, to borrow a phrase from the movie Amadeus played "too many notes." No one comes close.

Yes... family estate called Great Elm. Young Americans for Freedom was founded at that estate. It's gone now, I believe, although the Buckleys maintain some sort of property there.

How can you not like the Chaconne in D? For about 3 weeks now, I've been listening over and over to the same two CDs of Bach violin sonatas, partitas, etc. Even in this distinguished company the Chaconne towers over the rest.
